Dalvin Cook Deserves To Be Paid

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook recently made NFL Network analytics expert Cynthia Frelund's list of 10 players who deserve a new deal. The 24-year-old is currently searching for a new contract and stated that he plans to hold out if he doesn't get paid heading into the 2020 campaign. Cook ran for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns on 250 attempts in 2019. He also added 53 catches for 519 yards and was one of the most prolific runners inside the red zone. While there are a few months to go before the start of the regular season, fantasy managers should be prepared in the event Cook doesn't report to training camp at the end of July, while also targeting Alexander Mattison and Mike Boone as adequate handcuff options.

Vikings Hopeful Dalvin Cook Deal Will Get Done Soon

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was insulted by the team's initial extension offer. While the organization is hesitant to pay him the money that was recently afforded to Christian McCaffrey, especially for a guy who has been plagued by injuries, reports have surfaced that the fourth-year back would now settle for something in the $13 million per year range. Cook had a breakout season in 2019 by finishing with 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground. He also added 53 catches for 519 yards. With the Vikings hopeful and optimistic that a deal will get done within the next month, the former Seminole should remain a first-round fantasy pick, at least for now.

Vikings Zone Scheme A Perfect Fit For Dalvin Cook

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook's combination of speed, quickness, balance and vision as a one-cut runner fits perfectly in the team's outside-zone scheme. Cook had 25 runs of 10-plus yards in an offense that had the fourth-most rushing attempts in the league in 2019. Quarterback Kirk Cousins had a 71 percent completion rate and a 16:1 TD-to-interception ratio with an average of 8.5 yards per attempt with Cook on the field, per Next Gen Stats. Without Cook on the field, Cousins had a 66 percent completion rate, 10:5 TD-INT ratio and average of 7.3 yards per attempt. However, Cook has played in only 31 of 50 games in his three seasons due to injury, which will make the Vikings hesitant to cave into his contract demands. Minnesota can use the franchise tag to keep him around in 2021, and if he chooses to hold out for the start of training camp, Cook would give up his chance to reach unrestricted free agency in 2021.
